Laurel Park Elementary School

Summary:

Laurel Park Elementary School is a public elementary school in Brentwood, New York, serving 665 students in grades 1-5. The school is part of the Brentwood Union Free School District, which is ranked 800 out of 866 school districts in New York and has a 0-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Laurel Park Elementary School faces significant challenges in providing a high-quality education to its predominantly Hispanic and economically disadvantaged student population. The school consistently performs below the Brentwood district and the state of New York in academic proficiency, with only 9.02% of 3rd-grade students proficient in English Language Arts, compared to the district's 24.83% and the state's 44.89%. This low performance is consistent with the school's 0-star or 1-star rating from SchoolDigger, placing it in the bottom 10-15% of New York elementary schools. While the nearby schools in the Brentwood district also struggle academically, Laurel Park lags behind its counterparts, suggesting the school faces more severe challenges.

The high percentage of students (over 87%) who qualify for free or reduced-price lunch at Laurel Park Elementary School indicates a significant level of economic disadvantage in the community. Despite the relatively high per-student spending of $18,663, the school's academic performance remains poor, raising questions about the effective allocation and utilization of resources within the school and the district. The lower student-teacher ratio at Laurel Park (14.7) compared to nearby schools may suggest a more favorable learning environment, but this has not translated into improved academic outcomes for the students.

As you review the school rankings data, please be aware that some of the information from certain demographics is missing. The reason for this omission is that the data has been redacted from the source data itself due to low population samples in these specific demographic groups.

Redacting data from low population samples is a necessary step to ensure the reliability and accuracy of the results, as small sample sizes may not be representative of the broader population. Additionally, this measure helps protect the privacy of individuals belonging to these demographic groups.

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

About Student-Teacher Ratio

Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
